  Destined ...

              but Didn't Know It


Destined but Didn't Know It offers a glimpse into the life of Renee Bennett, a girl raised by a single mother as the third oldest of four sisters. Observant and quiet, Renee developed a passion for hairstyling at age 9, aspiring to become a hairstylist and salon owner by age 12. Despite her absent father, Renee admired his life but struggled with her identity as a result. Raised in the church, Renee found solace there, though she didn't always grasp the word of God initially. At 16, Renee became pregnant but chose to graduate with her class againast her mother's advice to drop out and work instead. After moving out at age 17, Renee entered a season of wandering, BUT GOD! All things will work out for her good.
